Substance Use, Abuse and Addiction: A Visual Representation

Here is a great video on what substance abuse looks like. It bypasses all the concerns over the definition of addiction. It does not get itself embroiled in the arguments over physical or mental disorder.  It does not discuss whether treatment should involve medication or not.  It does not ask questions about co-occurring disorders.  It very simply shows how addiction happens.

This is a great way to show a child why their crazy uncle drinks or uses too much.
